One of the main motivations for the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), scheduled to start around 2006, is to search for supersymmetric particles. The region of the parameter space of the minimal supersymmetric standard model, where supersymmetry can be discovered, is investigated. We show that if supersymmetry exists at the electroweak scale, it would be easy to find signals for it at the LHC. If the LHC does find supersymmetry, this would be one of the greatest achievements in the… Expand
The string theory landscape: a tale of two hydras
String theory is the leading theoretical approach to finding a consistent quantum theory that unifies gravity with the other three forces. However, the theory is only consistent in ten dimensions. InExpand
Softly broken conformal symmetry with higher curvature terms
In a scalar-coupled-gravity model, the quadratically divergent counter term appearing in the mass renormalization of the scalar fields must inherit corrections arising out of gravitationalExpand
Designing the four rod crab cavity for the high-luminosity LHC upgrade
This thesis presents the design for a novel compact crab cavity for the HL-LHC upgrade at CERN, Geneva. The LHC requires 400MHz RF cavities that can provide up to 10MV transverse gradient across twoExpand
Towards Keeping the Hippocratic Oath (Six Sigma)
This chapter jumps to the history of modern electronics, computers, the rise of the Internet, and artificial intelligence and how it might be applied to urolithiasis and some attention will be paid to complications, medical malpractice, and the notion of human error. Expand
Phenotype characterization of embryoid body structures generated by a crystal comet effect tail in an intercellular cancer collision scenario
The findings suggest that the authors are dealing with true reverse biologic system information in an activated collective cancer stem cell memory, in which physics participates in the elaboration of geometric complexes and chiral biomolecules that serve to build bodies with embryoid print as it develops during gestation.

A torsion-balance search for ultra low-mass bosonic dark matter
We used a stationary torsion balance with a beryllium-aluminum composition dipole to search for ultra low-mass bosonic dark matter coupled to baryon minus lepton number. We set 95% confidence limitsExpand

We investigate a variant of Left-Right symmetric model based on E6 inspired SU(3)C ⊗SU(2)L ⊗U(1)L ⊗ SU(2)R⊗U(1)R gauge group (32121). Spontaneous breaking of 32121 down to the Standard Model (SM)Expand


The Search for Supersymmetry: Probing Physics Beyond the Standard Model
Abstract In this paper we survey methods by which supersymmetry (or other new physics) could be observed in experiments at present and future accelerators. We review some of the motivation forExpand
QCD Effects in Higgs Physics
Higgs boson production at the LHC within the Standard Model and its minimal supersymmetric extension is reviewed. The predictions for decay rates and production cross sections are updated by choosingExpand
Comparison of grand unified theories with electroweak and strong coupling constants measured at LEP
Abstract Using the renormalization group equations one can evolve the electroweak and strong coupling constants, as measured at LEP, to higher energies in order to test the ideas of grand unifiedExpand
Radiative corrections to the masses of supersymmetric Higgs bosons
Abstract The lightest neutral Higgs boson in the minimal supersymmetric extension of the standard model has a tree-level mass less than that of the Z 0 . We calculate radiative corrections to itsExpand
Soft breaking of supersymmetry
Using superfield methods we discuss systematically explicit soft breaking of global supersymmetry. We find that, in a component field language, dimension-two operators are soft while, in general,Expand
The enigma of the dark matter
One of the great scientific enigmas still unsolved, the existence of dark matter, is reviewed. Simple gravitational arguments imply that most of the mass in the Universe, at least 90%, is someExpand
Probing the desert using gauge coupling unification
Abstract We present analytic one-loop expressions for sin 2 θ w , the unification scale M x , and the coupling at the unification scale α ( M x ), in supersymmetric grand-unified models withExpand
The phase diagram of QCD
Simple thermodynamic reasoning is used to argue that at temperatures of the order of a trillion kelvin, QCD, the theory which describes strongly interacting particles such as protons and neutronsExpand
Supersymmetry: What? why? when?
This article is a colloquium-level review of the idea of supersymmetry and why so many physicists expect it to soon be a major discovery in particle physics. Supersymmetry is the hypothesis, forExpand
Particle physics at the turn of the century
Aspects of particle physics are reviewed from an experimental viewpoint. The elementary constituents of the Universe are described, as are the fundamental forces through which they interact. RecentExpand
